"I started URepAdvancement because I saw that a lot of students of color, particularly at NESCAC institutions, were hesitant to apply to leading companies in the finance, consulting, and tech industries. I learned that this was because either they did not know anything about the company or they believed that an internship at that company was unobtainable. This made sense because of the clear lack of diversity that exists in these respective industries. Additionally, liberal arts colleges do not typically have curriculums in finance or technology that help students explore these spaces. The programs that URepAdvancement offers are opportunities that help undergraduates of color, disability, and the LGBTQ+ community consider a career in an industry that is not necessarily highlighted by their education."
